I've been interviewing and photographing members of the 3rd St. Boxing Studio for my Ethnographic Media class. While classmates will be making a documentary on the Dogpatch, a lesser known neighborhood of San Francisco, I am focusing on a few human interest stories to pique my own interest. This is a photograph of Adolfo. He is quiet and considerate. When I ask him about his boxing he says he'd like to be a professional but he wishes he had started earlier. He's 30 and most amateur boxers who want to succeed as professionals start competing around the age of 17.
